The music in your spin class is probably way too loud


Soulcycle_classDid you hear that? We said, “It’s WAY! TOO! LOUD!”

New York news team PIX 11 sent reporters incognito (read: legging-clad) to SoulCycle and Flywheel to investigate whether those lose-your-mind remixes are making you lose your hearing, too.

According to OSHA, or Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the healthy threshold is at 90 decibels. “All four studios they visited played at a near constant 100 decibels or more,” reported WPIX’s Kristin Cole. “Throughout the class, all studios spiked to levels of 115 decibels, blowing the known safety levels from industry fitness groups and OSHA.”

SoulCycle responded to the sweaty investigation, saying, “We are familiar with OSHA guidelines and provide complimentary hearing protection for all our riders at every studio.” Flywheel, which also provides earplugs for all their riders, has yet to comment. At least, nothing that we’ve been able to hear. —Sarah Sarway
